Upper Chest Veins

Veins in the upper chest area can be caused by excessive weight gain, inherited venous disease, and the normal aging process. The upper chest area is a common point for overexposure to the sun, which makes it susceptible to the appearance of spider and varicose veins. Spider veins can be as thick as 3mm, and cosmetically uncomfortable for our clients. We understand the need to lessen the appearance of these prominent chest veins that can protrude from the surface of the skin and offer some treatment options to diminish the appearance of these veins and boost your confidence.

How are varicose and spider veins in the upper chest area treated?

At Windward Vein, we make sure to give you a comprehensive consultation to look for any signs of deeper venous issues. We never treat veins without doing a full screening of a patient’s history and previous conditions. Some deep-rooted venous disease can lead to the appearance of upper chest varicose and spider veins, but are not common issues.

We treat these chest veins, after proper diagnosis by Dr. Wong, with various state-of-the-art techniques including sclerotherapy and laser therapy. Dr. Wong will go over all treatment options with you, and explain all that goes into these treatments.

How many treatments are needed?

We use sclerotherapy and laser therapy to remove these veins over a series of treatments, depending on the frequency of these veins. The length of each treatment can be anywhere from half an hour to an hour, and Dr. Wong will go over all the details with you during your consultation at Windward Vein.

Upper Chest Vein Treatments:

Sclerotherapy involves minimally invasive procedures, designed to require little to no recovery time. Dr. Wong will insert a small needle gently into the affected vein in the chest, and administer a sclerosing agent into the vein that will cause the veins walls to stick together and close off the vein.

Laser therapy is an outpatient, minimally invasive procedure that requires the insertion of a laser-tipped catheter into the affected vein via a small needle. A small amount of topical anesthetic, if any, will be used to numb the area. The laser is inserted into the vein where heat energy is applied to the walls of the vein; the vein will begin to close as the catheter is removed.
